We were attracted to this hotel because of the price and the look of it, very modern and new. The hotel was fine, the gym was terrible, no cable on the tv just one sports channel. The rooms are tiny and very dark, everything is painted dark colours. It is good for sleeping, but you don't feel very relaxed in your hotel room. It just feels small and dark. All of the staff seem very new, most of them are very nice, but not helpful. It's like they are all still in training. We were woken up every morning to the cleaners either smashing their carts against the walls in the hallway or the sound of the door to the stairs slamming - the cleaners would use the stairs a lot. They also had very loud conversations in the hallway, as if they didn't realize that people were sleeping at 7:30 am.
The restaurant was overpriced for what you get. The food is very basic, nothing special at all. The restaurant was always understaffed when we went, so we waited a long time for service. The location is fine, I would have rather been closer to the back bay area, but it was still within walking distance to most things.
I would not stay here again. Spend $50 more per night and opt for a nicer hotel for a better experience.
